SiP sources a diverse range of speakers, offering impartial advice on the entire speaker spectrum. We are always up-to-date with newly available and undiscovered talent, as well as world-leading experts. Our extensive experience within financial services means we know who goes down well for different segments of the industry, to ensure that similar audiences are not presented with the same content.

As part of MiP, a leading London-based financial marketing company, we uniquely combine specialist knowledge with a wealth of creative conference and marketing expertise.

We have bespoke research capabilities, and an ever-growing database of speakers and experts.

We also work with a dedicated media trainer, facilitating virtual and in-person workshops to help our clients prepare of board meetings and large-scale conferences.

Crafting Agendas

We help build agendas from the bottom up, advising on themes and evolving formats for both new and established conferences and other events.


A conversation with Ed Balls

Last week the MiP were on-site at the annual Franklin Templeton UK Investment Conference at the May Fair. Ed Balls joined us for a fireside chat with Martyn Gilby, where they discussed the upcoming UK and US elections, rising inflation fears, and the global macro-economic outlook for 2024.

Schroders Minds

Gareth Thomas, one of the most iconic and respected figures in world rugby, gave a powerful speech at the Schroders Minds event last week. His session raised awareness around some key issues, in particular LGBTQ+ equality, mental health and tackling stigma around HIV.

Tim Marshall

After a short Christmas break, SiP was delighted to start the New Year at the Janus Henderson Investors UK Investment Conference 2024 on the 11th January. SiP favourite, Tim Marshall, was back in action, providing a geopolitical update on China & Taiwan, the USA, the Middle-East, Russia & Ukraine, and more.
